Family Historian

I can research your full family tree, trace a specific family line, or research an individual ancestor. If you have reached a brick wall I can analyse your findings to date and suggest a way forward.

All family history projects are unique and before starting research I will agree the scope of the project with you. I will listen to your requirements and tailor the project to meet your goals. I produce a  written research report for all projects, describing all research carried out and the results found. In the research report I will analyse the evidence and suggest next steps for research.

For most research projects the cost is based on the time taken to carry out the work. Before work commences I will ask you to authorise a number of hours work and an expenses limit. More information on costs can be found on my Fees page.

If you would like to make an enquiry you can do so via my Enquiry Form or by emailing me at elsom.genealogy@gmail.com.

If you are at an early stage in your family history research I offer the fixed price Victorian Ancestors package. The Victorian Ancestors package aims to trace one line of your English family back to the start of civil registration registration in England and Wales 1837. Read more on the Victorian Ancestors page.
